Heading off to West Texas for a Wired reporting trip today, so light posting for the next lil’ while. Until I manage to secure myself some dependable WiFi in the lightly populated triangle between Lubbock, Abilene, and Wichita Falls, please make do with highlights of the late-period Fly Girls. Sad to think such joyously athletic choreography has now vanished from the small screen, yet the depressing vapidity of Dancing With the Stars flourishes.

    Not just from the small screen, either (btw, it’s worth pointing out that a Fly Girl now judges American Idol).

    Believe it or not, youngsters, but back when the Fly Girls were “in full effect” rappers like Big Daddy Kane and Heavy D actually considered their dancers to be integral members of their group. Even dance-mongers like Soulja Boy don’t have dancers.

    They also rapped uphill, both ways!

    Heck, Tupac started as a *backup* dancer for Digital Underground.
